Letting Go

Lately I've been working with letting go.  Letting go can mean different things to different people.  You can let go of possessions.  You can let go of people.  You can let go of expectations.  You can let go of the need to control people or situations.  You get the idea.

In my case, I'm working on letting go of the need to know what, when, where, and why things are going to happen.  It's so difficult for me.  I know that I can't control everything in my life, but being human, I always want to try.  I use the Serenity Prayer as my mantra.  It goes:

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

During one of my meditations this week, the guide I was working with asked me to step into a black hole that was in front of me...to step into an abyss.  It was my choice to do it or not, but since I trusted her, I did as directed.  I found myself suspended in dark nothingness.  Then I heard the familiar voice of my teacher guide and felt her presence and the presence of other beings of light.  She said, "We've got you.  You were never alone and never will be alone."  What a comfort.

I felt led to share this with you because I believe that this is true for EVERYONE!  Whatever your belief system; God, angels, guides, gods, goddesses, ancestors - whatever - we are never alone.  There is always help for us whether we're aware of it or not.  They're just waiting for us to ask for their help and guidance.

Guides and Angels

In future blogs, I may be referencing Guides and Angels. I'd like to give you my definition so you understand where I'm coming from.

To me, a guide is a being that has lived before and comes back to help people.  They're often family or friends that you knew in your lifetime, but they don't have to be.  It could be your mother, father, grandparents, siblings, in-laws or some other close relative.  This could be very comforting.  It could also be a great, great, great grandparent, aunt or uncle that you never knew.  It doesn't really matter.  What matters is that they're here to help you if you let them.

To me, angels are beings that have never had a physical body.  They have always been, and always will be in spiritual form.  They have a sweet, gentle, comforting presence, but they are very powerful.  They're all around and are just waiting for you to ask for their help.

Guides and Angels are beautiful beings and are good to keep in touch with.  Most people have had experiences of some kind or another:  seeing them, feeling their presence, hearing a song, smelling a fragrance, watching a movie, hearing a phrase...just at the right moment.  They're all around.  Pay attention and you may experience them.

Love,  Paula

Happy New Year 2018

As I've mentioned in previous blogs, I really don't believe in New Year's Resolutions.  I feel like it's just something that makes you feel bad about yourself when you quit doing it...a week later...

This year starts with a super full moon.  When there is a full moon, you're supposed to use that energy to improve something in your life.  Because this full moon starts the new year, you're supposed to set your intentions for the year.

My intentions for the new year are:  meditate more regularly, blog and write more regularly, and take better care of myself by exercising and eating better.  WOW...that sounds like New Year's Resolutions.  Oh well...intentions set.  I'll let you know how I make out.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, prosperous 2018 filled with wonderful surprises and magic!

Love,  Paula
